VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) — Police have released the name of an 80-year-old man who they say shot three people in the lobby of an apartment building for seniors in Vancouver, Washington.
The Vancouver Police Department says Robert E. Breck fatally shot a man and shot and wounded two women Thursday afternoon.
Police say the women were taken to hospitals for treatment and the man died at the scene.
Police say Breck later refused to come out of his apartment but was taken into custody without further incident after talking extensively with police.
He was booked into jail on suspicion of murder and attempted murder. It wasn’t immediately known if he has a lawyer.
Police say everyone who was evacuated during the incident has been cleared to return home.
